[LE FREAK FOLK] For an act so slavishly predicated on the boundless expression of the inner child, CocoRosie have sustained an admirably productive career. While we doubt the electronica-dappled backdrops of recently released fifth album Tales Of A Grass Widow shall win over the uninitiated, the American-born, Parisian-based Casaday sisters continue to hone something not unlike consistency from a frankly bonkers muse. Peering behind the veil of bucolic hip-hopera and naif-grotesque stagecraft, Sierra and Bianca trade upon the keening strangeness of their inimitable vocal interplay—gardens of verses at once spectral and sappy, affected and affecting, that mine the unknowable, at times insufferable depths of the past century's least well-behaved female vocalists (a bit of Tori's measured hysteria here, the addled grandeur of Diamanda there, Bjork and Billie never far away)—for curdled confections not, perhaps, always to our tastes, but the little girls understand.
